The Madison, WI Institutes for the Healing of Racism, Inc. offers a 10-week series that aims to raise consciousness about the history and pathology of racism and help heal racism in individuals, communities, and institutions in Madison. We work cooperatively to educate ourselves about the disease of racism through facilitated and voluntary sharing. We ask that people come with an open mind and open heart.
